Thursday: Scattered sprinkles continue this morning with areas of fog reducing visibility. Fog will gradually lift heading into the afternoon. The main band of rain will slide east, but isolated showers will remain possible throughout the day. Instability increasing by the evening will allow showers to develop into isolated thunderstorms.

The instability and thunderstorm potential is the result of mild temperatures finally returning to the region. Highs push comfortably into the low to upper 60s today.

Friday: The 60s continue Friday under drier and sunnier conditions. The Northland will be on the northern edge of rain chances arriving Saturday evening and tapering off west to east Sunday.

Saturday: An east wind developing Saturday will knock highs down in the Twin Ports and along the shores of Lake Superior while 60s are once again achieved inland. This trend continues Sunday. A ridge of warm air will continue to take over the region through the start of next week with many areas reaching 70.
